    Bull****, and I challenge you find any reasonable support for that.

    why don't you try to come up with a better one

    I suspect for you it changes constantly depending on what the tax rate is

    But its certainly a legitimate point to start with share of the income and say a fair share of the income tax is your same share of the income

    of course I believe its based on what you use meaning 1% of the population should pay for one percent of the government services.

    I take it the support of Lincoln isn't good enough for you is it? Okay, well how about the fact that it is the working class who makes the products that the capitalists sell. If it were not for the working class, the capitalists would have nothing. They rely on labor to build their products. That is why strikes are such an effective tactic, because they deprive the capitalists of their source of labor and thus drain them of their abilty to produce. If labor was not so important strikes would not as effective as they are.

    yeah you have spammed that youtube before but since you don't have the ability to actually post what you think is a definition of fair share, its rather cowardly to whine about someone else's that is tied to objective reality

    Simplicity and a simple minded response which ignores all substance of the components of actual debate are two very different things.

    Glad to hear you agree with cutting our wasteful military spending! That could reduce our government spending by $350 billion a year.
